Nope, I was gonna use it as a pet. Then it says uncharmable and can you believe it tried to eat me?

The MB model has a nasty knockback spell that will knock you into the lava. I haven't found a reliable way out of the lava yet, so I would advise levitate if possible. Even back to the wall tactics don't eliminate the possibility of winding up in the lava. Levitate works flawlessly though.

Just been camping this mob on the Combine server (28/09/06). There is a 20 mins spawn time and it is the wanderer, it spawns in the pick and bucket room. I set up camp just across and to the left of the first bridge after that room in a small niche. Very easy camp, spawned on the third kill. Mob wanders between bucket and castle courtyard.

I went to Sol A about 10PM and EXG was camped. Came back around midnight, no one else in zone. I set up at the room with the pick and bucket, up the path from the courtyard. There is one wandering mob that goes back and forth between the courtyard and this bucket room. I just kept killing the wandering mob. First 3 were regular clockwork type models. The next 2 were clockwork spiders. The next 1 was the EXG model, which resisted every spell I cast, and I was using my main to get the item for my alt cleric, and my main is a 52 pally. Could not root it, stun it, etc. Just have to melee it. I was hoping to root it because when it got low on health I didn't want it wandering off into the lava or training all the other gnomies on me. 20 greenies adds up to a lot of damage heh. However, the other gnomies didn't aggro at all, just stood and watched, probably with horror, as I keeled their EXG model.

The EXG dropped the Charred Guardian Breastplate. Ack, that's not what I wanted, was after the shield. But hey, bonus, a decent item to sell in EC. Looking at this site, I saw they are priced about the same, the shield and BP. Anyway...So after 2 hours I was thinking I was going to have to wait another 2 for the EXG to respawn and hopefully it'd have the shield this time.

On the very next pop, it was the EXG model AGAIN. I was amazed. This time it had the shield. She (it's a she) obviously was equipping it so you could tell she had it. Woo-hoo.

So, the actual spawn point is somewhere inbetween the courtyard and the bucket room. It doesn't matter, just hang out somewhere along that path between the two. It wanders back and forth. The wanderer is sometimes a clockwork spider, a regular gnomie clockwork, and then apparently at random intervals, the EXG model.
Which is better?

I have a Charred Guardian Shield. Is it still worth doing the Testament of Van quest for the book? Is it really an upgrade?
RE: Which is better?
# Aug 07 2002 at 3:38 PM Rating: Decent
lol, the shield is a little bit better, due to the ac. ToV has +10 mana and 1 extra wis, but that really doesnt matter too much at higher lvls
RE: Which is better?
# Oct 10 2002 at 10:29 PM Rating: Decent

Yea, but at high level, a +10 AC doesn't make that much of a difference either because most of the time you sit on your butt, unless you have some uber hammer that procs uber DD.

Now that clerics can bash I have seen more and more of them fighting, especially on encounters against casters that CH themselves. I think this makes the CGS worth it.

Side note: I'm pretty sure those little gnomie geeks and thier robots see right thru invis. I imagine that would make it a little more time consuming at lower lvls.

Place holder
# Mar 16 2002 at 11:49 AM Rating: Decent
For those like me who read kill the ph and had now idea who the place holder was. I guess everyone assumed everyone else knew. Which by the way they dont. A few of you are wrong as to who the ph is too. So heres the scope. there is one clockworks that acutually wanders the hallway to and from the courtyard. This is the ph. Kill it and hopefully the model exg will spawn. It may not. Another ph may spawn in its place. Just keep killing the ph till the model exg pops. By the way the quest will drain your faction with the gnomes which is an execellent place to sell the stuff you find in Sol A Especially the ore which wieghts a ton

CGS as A Light Source
# Feb 28 2002 at 3:15 PM Rating: Decent
I have noticed an Ability of the CGS that is not Listed on the Shield.
The CGS acts as A Light Source! Though I am not sure if it is equal to a GLS, it is pretty Close. After I discovered this, my druid stopped carrying a GLS and to carry another Backpack.

Maybe some of you other CGS owners, might want to test to see if the CGS acts as a light Source. Access tunnels to RV, SFG or BB are easy places to test it as a light source.

I dont understand why would the price be so cheap?? i mean it has 9 WIS its practicly like a paw of oppala so why is the paw worth more than the shield??? I am so confused.

Paw of oppolla is primary also. This is secondary only, and competes with the easy Testament of Vanear quest for secondary slot wisdom item. Secondary wisdom items are worth less than primary wis items of the same stats. Similarly, a range item with this much wisdom would be worth many thousands of plat. Its not just the stats, its the slot it goes in.

This was actually the easiest camp I have done so far. Once you get into Sol, get to area 9 (goto to get map). This is the place where it is SUPPOSE to spawn. It actually spawns up the path from the gate of the castle. My friend and I camped it for 2.5 hours 3 nights ago and we each got a shield. Not sure if it has a PH, but we wacked 4 cycles worth of "Pops". The area to camp is very safe, has a bucket and pick in the corner. Keep in mind, this mob is magic resistant. Seems only DMG shields worked against it. SO .. have a healer and slug it out. Estimated spawn time 1 - 2 hours (not sure when we first got there) but we only saw 2, and both had shield. Good hunting

Not able to equip this with my BL. Advanced search shows this as a BL shield.
Description in-game also doesn't show BL as an equipable class.
CGS vs ToV
# Dec 01 2001 at 10:55 PM Rating: Good
Clerics can wear armor, and are thus designed to have a higher ACs from equipment. Clerics should use the CGS.

Druids are outdoors kind of people. AC isn't as much of an issue since you shouldn't be getting hit. Druids should use the ToV.

The +10 MANA makes up for the loss of AC.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 25 2001 at 7:45 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) can i have it? i am a rogoe. my name is mondenkind. i am on weekends online. a good piercing weapon - better as gsfang will be good too. cu
RE: the shield
# Nov 26 2001 at 3:55 AM Rating: Decent
For the love of Tunare... why would a rogue want this? Rogues are damage dealers, they should be dual weilding something. This is a wis item clearly. So just for wis casters, maybe paladins.

If you are a rogue, can't dual wield yet and have enough money you should center your attention in acquiring a cracked darkwood shield for the extra strength.

If you click on the link 'Pricing Data' you can see that some smart guy thought it would be funny to ***** up the price. HAHA, very funny, here's your cookie, good job!
# Oct 23 2001 at 2:49 AM Rating: Default
Just a question. I saw someone mention that the CGS is better than the ToV, sans weight. Is this true? I'm just wondering. I was given a CGS for giving an Elf a Bind. Do I keep it, ot continue and Quest for the ToV? Any sugestions are certainly welcome. :)

Friend, it says right there the average price is 420 pp. I had a Dwarven tunic thrown up in the bank, and I was wearing a RYGOR TUNIC. This item increased Strength, but not what a cleric really needs. I traded my ry'Gor tunic for THIS (CGS) and a Bone Wrath hammer. (you do the math). It was a great deal. I thiink the reason they can sell for so much is basicaly EVERYONE wants one.

This thing IS very nice. The Wis bonus is great. Unfortunaltly I had a bark shield AC15+15 agility. And I lost some AC.

See i came here at one point to see if I was ripped off or got a good deal.

CGS - (according to the site) Average Price: 420pp
Bone Wrathe hammer - Average Price: 466pp
Ry'Gor Tunic - Average Price: 941pp

So I got a decent deal according tot hese prices. Maybe you could assume it SHOULD be about the cost of those 2 items on your server? Just go to tunnel and /shout PC on CGS ? That way you know what its worth to those on your server?

Well, I am playing on Bertoxx, one of the oldest server online, and the price for the CGS is 400 to 500pp and has been for almost a year now. Zhis item is pretty common by now but 9 WIS is quiet a lot for such a common item. Almost all CLR/SHM/DRU use or used em and most twinks get one to start with. Therefor the price is relativ stable and I guess it will remain in that area.
# Aug 21 2001 at 6:18 PM Rating: Default
I was looking to buy one of these on the Povar server, and have seen 2 offered at 1kpp...could this be true? Are they still worth THAT much? Everywhere else I've seen, they're much lower than I crazy for not wanting to pay that much for this item, or is this the new going rate?
